Flank Steak a la Willyboy

Well, this recipe was a swing and a miss. (And, obviously, I'm terrible at marketing, haha!) You see - On Sunday, I sat down with a cookbook and picked out 4 new recipes to try, made a grocery list, and went shopping. I'm not normally so organized, but I'm tired of fixing my same recipes, and I really wanted a good one to offer you all today. Welp, so much for that plan :)

Bo and I agreed that this only rated a 3 Spoons, and he summed it up after dinner by saying, "You know - this is jerky. It tastes just like jerky." I couldn't agree more. I think it's the combo of red meat with both soy sauce and honey that reminds us of teriyaki jerky. Whatever the cause, whoops and sorry!

Better luck next time?

courtesy of
1/4 c. honey
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. red wine
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 pinch oregano
1 pinch thyme
ground black pepper, to taste
1 lb flank steak

In a medium bowl, whisk together all the sauce ingredients.  Let stand for 15 minutes to blend the flavors.  Place the marinade and steak into a gallon size ziploc bag and allow to marinate overnight in refrigerator.

Lightly oil grill rack and preheat grill for high heat.  Grill steak for 7 minutes each side for medium-rare or to desired doneness.  Let stand for 10 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain.

Ingredient lineup:

Mix everything and throw into a ziploc:

Makes for a pretty salad, but we would've
been just as happy without the meat.

p.s.  If you want info on the salad part and my most favorite homemade dressing, I've got details on my personal blog - sweet somethings.
